I’m a colorectal surgeon in Atlanta, GA. After delivering my first child in February 2020 and experiencing the isolation of shelter-in-place due to COVID, I found myself looking online for resources. The creation of Corona Mamas (@coronamama1) on Twitter was an outlet to share resources regarding maternal mental health and general wellness especially when human contact was so limited.
I quickly realized all moms were now Corona Mamas. Moms were having to work from home, become homeschool teachers and more! Then came the turmoil and social unrest surrounding the killing of George Floyd and it was laid bare the injustices of the world. How to raise my newborn in the era of 2 pandemics Covid-19 and Racism was front of mind, and I couldn’t find a source that was just right.
This site was born out of my desire to create the type of site I was looking for — a little bit of everything. I look forward to growing and building an innovative site where all moms can find at least a little something for them.
Thank you for taking this journey with me!!!
